On Monday 22 January, Midrand SAPS and CPF received a distressed call from a Carlswald resident Mr Gerry De-Leeuw, informing them that his mother had been missing from 09h00 that morning.

88-year-old Elizabeth De-Leeuw had left her home in Carlswald following her standard day to day routine: popping to the local shops, visiting friends or getting her hair done.

By 19h00, when there no still word from Ms De-Leeuw, SAPS, CPF, private security companies and residents started their search, covering every possible route, parking lot and garage as well as sending out an alert to their national network.

“By 22h30, with no success, contact was made with a local reiki healer Mrs Agi Carroll, who led the team to the Boulders Shopping Centre where she was picking up vibrations from Ms De-Leeuw and felt that she was weak, but alive and locked away. Mrs Caroll then led the team to her car, which was found in the bottom car park of the Boulders Shopping Centre, which was unfortunately locked with no sign of Ms De-Leeuw.”

The search continued with now approximately 35 search members in tow, checking every nook and cranny of the shopping centre.

Just before midnight, there was a search along a stairway and the team knocked on the door of an elevator and called out “Hello” and “Elizabeth” when a faint English accent answering “Hello I’m here” was heard from inside the elevator.

The 88-year-old great grandmother had been trapped in the lift for over 14 hours at this stage.

The team forced open the elevator doors and out popped Ms De-Leeuw with a cheery “Hello Dear”. Hugs, crying and much relief followed all around.

When meeting this amazing 88-year-old spring chicken, you can understand why she got through the ordeal with her strong mind. Through meditation and prayer, she managed to keep herself sane, dozing off occasionally. Paramedics were called and aside from being slightly dehydrated she was as fit as fiddle.

Our sincere and heartfelt thanks go out to the team who would not give up until Ms De-Leeuw was found.
